“RIP my bishop. You did your best.
On behalf of my family and on my own behalf, I learned this morning of the death of the first Bishop of Terekeka Diocese late Rt. Rev. Canon Micah Laila Dawidi.
His death is a shock to us his spiritual children. Bishop Micah Laila was my mentor since 1991 to 1997 when I was serving under him as acting Diocesan Secretary of Terekeka Developing Diocese and Pastor incharge of Terekeka Parish.
Through his leadership, we were able to train enough church leaders from 1994-1997. Most of whom are leading the Diocese of Terekeka today.
Bishop Micah Laila was one of the pioneers of ECSS in Mundari land starting in Tali when he was a student at Bishop Gwynne college in Mundri in early 1980s.
Late Bishop Micah Laila was a fearless preacher who call a spade spade and hard working person both for the church and his family.
To Mundari, we’ve lost a spiritual father, an elder, a guider and a shade where people take cover.
You have done your very best late Bishop Micah Laila, as a teacher, a spiritial father, a guider, and a leader among Mundari people and in South Sudan. We celebrate your legacies and your age.
God has given you to us and he has taken you away from us. May His Name be Praise.

“My condolence to the family of Bishop of ECS Micha Laila who has passed away in untimely death it’s a big sorrow to me and the community of Mundari and South Sudan in general, it’s a big gap since you are dead now, you been a pole of our tribe, you’re a spiritual person and such a earthly legend beyond the rims, you’re such an exemplary human being with light heart of humanity and a face of South Sudan in peace making. We mourn you until you bless us once again. No more you but your legacy will always live with us father let you rest in peace and let your spirit walk up on us ever.”
